Assessing an Assignment Submission

Once your students have submitted their ePortfolio to an assignment step, you can provide feedback or assessment within Digication.


Required Steps

View a Student's Evidence Submission

  1. From the Digication Home page, click the name of your course under the My Courses section.
  2. Click the Assignments tab on the menu.
  3. Click on the name of the assignment along the top of the grid.

    NOTE: You will see a table with your class list along the left side, and the steps of the assignment along the top row. Students who have submitted work to an "Evidence" step should have a yellow box under this step, while those who have not submitted will have a blue box.

  4. Click the name of the student to view all submitted items for all steps in the assignment, or click on the yellow box of a single step step to view submissions for that step.
  5. You will see a list of submitted evidence for that student.
  6. Click View ePortfolio (if the submission is an ePortfolio link) or Download File (if the submission is an attachment).
  7. The student's ePortfolio or file download will now appear

Clear a Student Submission

In cases where a student accidentally submits the wrong ePortfolio section or file to an evidence step, you may need to clear the student submission before he or she can re-submit the correct evidence (if changes are not allowed to the step).

NOTE: If the student makes changes after their ePortfolio has been submitted, the student must re-submit the entire portfolio before those changes will be visible within the submitted ePortfolio.

  1. From the Assignments tab in your course, click the name of the assignment along the top of the grid.
  2. Click the name of the student whose work you need to clear.
  3. Open the student submission page by clicking on the title of the assignment you wish to edit.
  4. Click Delete next to the student submission(s) you wish to remove.
  5. At the bottom of the page, click Save and Unsubmit to completely remove those items.
  6. The student will now be able to re-submit work to that step in the assignment

Assess with a Teacher Reflection

The best way to respond with qualitative feedback to a student submission in Digication is with a Teacher Reflection step. See the Creating an Assignment page for instructions on adding this step to an assignment.

NOTE: You can still add a Teacher Reflection step after students have submitted to an assignment.

  1. From the Assignments tab in your course, click the name of the assignment along the top of the grid.
  2. Click the name of the student whose work you will assess.
  3. Click the My Reflection step.
  4. Leave your feedback for the student.
    • If you want to enter text comments, enter them in the "Assessment" field.
    • If you want to upload a file from your computer with your feedback, click Upload and then Browse for file. Then select the file from your computer.
  5. Click Save and Submit at the bottom of the screen.
  6. The student can now review your feedback by going to the Assignments tab within their class page and viewing the items within the Teacher Reflection step.
